    But why would making an electromagnet be a bad thing?

    It's not bad. That's the point. The ad says that power companies are afraid of people making them, but electromagnet can do no damage to them. The point is that it's click bait, and it looks "sciency" to someone who doesn't know what it actually is and will think that making an electromagnet can cut down their bills, but thats not the case and everyone who knows what it's a picture of knows how ridiculous it is. It's just bad.

    So did you actually read the article, or are you basing your entire rant on the ad banner photo?

    The power companies might be worried though that people would look at the vaguely related stock image, think they have to make something rather than buy in a power factor correction device which probably burns more energy than it saves (and a lot of countries domestic stuff probably never had power factor considered anyway) and not ultimately give them even more money.

    That risks accuracy issues. Not so bad when you can clean it off with a sock or something but more troubling here.
